Paisley Prints: Christmas tree celebrate


Happy Friday! I'm back to having great reasons to celebrate the weekend! Whoo! Hoo!


In case you were getting tired of the "Thanks" stamp, here's a change of pace with a new set called Paisley Prints. It's from the Holiday Mini and will be available to order September 1. I love the little paisley tree from this set best.


This one's super simple...I used the matching paisley wheel for the Crumb Cake strip and wrapped it with a HUGE amount of Linen Thread...I was taking deep breaths to use so much! ha! For the folded green strip, I curled it up a lot, back and forth, breaking down the fibers in the paper, then pulled it apart gently so you can see the "inside" of the cardstock. It gives you a little different texture, that "suede" look.


I'll be back tomorrow and I'll be catching up on my Google Reader too, it's amazing how behind you can get in just a couple of days! Yikes! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!


Recipe
Stamps: Paisley Prints.
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Poppy Parade, Wild Wasabi.
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso.
Accessories: Linen Thread, Mini Library Clip, dimensionals.

This is so pretty. I love all of the tiny details from the pulled apart card stock to all of that Linen Thread - GASP! I'm a linen thread hoarder and I don't know why since I can easily order more. LOL!

Oh so fab! I love distressing paper too. At first glance I thought the wild wasabi was ribbon. Clever!

Ooh, great way to get a ribbon look with colors we don't have in ribbon! I'm tucking that idea sway for later. Cute card!
